NEW YORK, July 6, 2010 — Humanscale is now accepting wildlife-inspired artwork to auction at the tenth-annual Faces in the Wild event. The live auction and design competition, aimed at raising awareness and funds for wildlife protection, is scheduled for October 7, 2010, at Humanscale’s New York showroom.
Artists and designers are encouraged to donate original art in any physical medium—including printed or painted matter, photography, and sculpture—depicting any non-domesticated animal, insects, or wildlife scenes. All entries must be easily transportable, display-ready, and made from environmentally friendly, non-perishable materials.
Due to space limitations, the number of entries is limited to 100. All entries will be featured in an online preview auction, with 50 jury-selected items up for grabs at silent and live auctions in Humanscale’s showroom on October 7.  To reserve a spot and request an entry form, contact Karen Brooking at 212- 353-1383 or via email at karen@bdeonline.biz. Artwork, photos of the artwork, and two copies of the completed entry form must be submitted by September 10, 2010.
Since its inception, Faces in the Wild has generated more than $340,000 for wildlife conservation, including matching donations from Humanscale. All proceeds from the 2010 event will go directly to World Wildlife Fund (WWF), the largest conservation organization in the world. WWF leads international efforts to protect endangered species and their habitats. By 2015, the organization hopes to conserve 19 of the world’s most important natural places—including the Galapagos and Congo Basin—and significantly mediate global forces like agriculture and climate change to protect the future of nature.
Humanscale Founder and CEO Robert King has served on WWF’s National Council since 1999. As a company, Humanscale is dedicated to environmental sustainability and continually strives to design, engineer and manufacture products that consume less of Earth’s limited resources.
